The Gardener’s Greeting

A true friend helps you up when you are down or sits and listens to you when they cannot raise you up.
Music – Flow State

“If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.”

Khalil Gibran

Red Valerian
“I think, a secret love is something none of your friends would understand. And it’s like a fairy tale, but more serious.”


“Love is easy, and I love writing.”

Ray Bradbury

Common Gladiolus
“Our heart glows, and secret unrest gnaws at the root of our being. Dealing with the unconscious has become a question of life for us.”

Carl Jung

Who would have thunk it?
Useless facts until you need useless facts.

Flamingos do not bend at the knee – nope, they do so at the ankle!

If you thought for one moment that dolphins were masters at holding their breath, you would be sadly mistaken. They are amateur breath holders with a mere ten minutes before needing to surface for air, and yet when compared to sloths, there is no match. Sloths are indeed masters with an impressive forty minutes of breath holding!

Rather disappointingly and yet true! Fruit loops are all different colours and yet taste the same!

Try humming for one minute whilst holding your nose … you can’t, right? Know why? Because when you hum, the air escapes through your nose and creates the noise.

Despite belief – the dunce cap was not a sign of stupidity but of intelligence. John Duns Scotus – a thirteenth-century philosopher – believed that a pointed hat would encourage spreading knowledge from the tip of the brain. His followers labelled Dunsmen wore them to honour him in the 1500s. However, society soon saw it all as a joke and turned it on its head into a stupid gaff.

I know, right!
Who would have thunk it?

Wishing all you great folks a fabulous day!
